Hey everyone (first posting w00t!)

So I was wondering if you guys would rate my build on a scale of 1-10 (or w.e you prefer) and help me improve on what I have so far.
Please keep in mind I do some video and photo editing as well as casual gaming.

Motherboard: Gigabyte x79-UD3
CPU: Intel i7-3820
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16gb 1600MHz
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6750
SSD: Sandisk Extreme 120gb (for OS)
HDD: WD Blue 1tb
HDD: WD Green 1tb
PSU: OCZ ModXStream-Pro 500W
Heatsink: Thermaltake Frio 120mm
Case: Rosewill Blackhawk ATX

I realize I may have to upgrade my graphics card and was thinking of going with either the 660ti or 7950, but wondering if I may have to upgrade my psu to accommodate the extra power needed.

If, you want to get a good graphics card get the 660. It is a much better value than the 660ti, it will not perform as well but it has better price/performance and you wouldn't need a new power supply because it only needs one power connector. Also consider a 7870.
